Strain Integrity

According to Broken Coast, “Ruxton (Sour Diesel) is a sativa-dominant strain that is the result of a cross between OG Kush and Sour Diesel. This exceptionally pungent phenotype produces a strong, heavy smoke and intense flavour with notes of lime and diesel. Rounded and well-balanced, Ruxton retains the best qualities of its parents.”  Clearly by Broken Coast’s description, Ruxton is Sour OG and not Sour Diesel.

According to Leafly, “Sour OG is a 50/50 hybrid strain that is a real favorite among those who love a balanced sativa/indica buzz. As a cross of two of the most popular and widely available strains in the world (Sour Diesel and OG Kush), Sour OG has been available in clone and seed form for quite some time. Most samples express dense, round, OG Kush-type buds laden with large, sticky trichomes. The odor and taste are usually an equal mix of both parents, with sour lemon, pine, fuel, and a distinct “kushy” undertone, although some versions have a more fruity profile. Often described as a “one-hit-quit” strain, Sour OG starts with an energetic head high that gradually gives way to a relaxing body stone.

The content came in prime condition with full fragrant and not bone dry.  The heavy medicinal scent with hints of Kush mixed strong fuel fumes is heavenly.

Psychedelic time dilation assault on your senses

We finally got to test Ruxton in our second attempt.  The first attempt we could only buy 1 gram and the content mysteriously disappeared at the office.  This time we caught the OCS offering and immediately bought it and it was sold out at the OCS within 24 hours.  The THC content label indicated 23% on this batch.

This is one of the most enjoyable strains we have tried.  We started with a vape and a joint test sessions simultaneously.  Start and note the time … mental note.  The effects were immediate.  After the third and fourth inhalations we were fully engaged.  Upon completion of our inhalation, the high was coming on like a run away train.  The body high was immediate and undeniable.  A shot of wakefulness and euphoria kicks in after 5 minutes.  For those who are more sensitive to psychedelic effects of cannabis Ruxton will not disappoint.  Your vision will shimmer lightly as you feel the psychedelics.

After 15 minutes, the testers looked at each other and asked what time did we start?  We should not have taken mental note.  We can’t remember what time we started.  It felt like half an hour.  Couch lock time sets in and time slows down.  After half an hour, we thought it must have been an hour since we started … we could not remember what time we started.  We kept saying “This stuff is really strong” for the first 15 minutes.

You start to come off that peak more noticeably after 50 minutes.  We regain our sense of time and figured out what happened.  It was extreme time dilation to the point it is debilitating.  For those who have negative experience with anxiety attacks, this might not be a strain to try.   For the hardcore, this is exactly what you want.

It is a solid two hours and the second hour seem disappointing but it really is not.  The second hour high is the equivalent of the peak high from the lesser LPs products.  It just felt less because the peak high was so intense.  You should be able to cruise through for more than a few hours feeling the Ruxton effects of just chilled at the end.


Ruxton by Broken Coast

Need we say more?  It’s Broken Coast.  We include a picture of the package where you can see the container filled to the top.  There is ZERO stalks and shakes.  This is a fresh batch packaged in December 2018.  Why? why? why? can’t the other LPs produce similar quality?  Might be unfair to them because this is the BEST we have tried.

Quality: 9.5

Intensity: 9.9

Duration: 9.0

Total: 9.46

Cost: $48 for 3.5 grams

This is a strain for that special occasion.  Getting things done under the influence of Ruxton will be difficult.  Watching TV, listening to music and chilling are the perfect Ruxton moments.  Socializing is fine too.  Walking the dog and use to motivate cleaning up the house are bad ideas under the influence of Ruxton.  You can do all these things but they are just not the most enjoyable states.  Sitting down with a good conversation with your favourite person or listening to music or watching something funny that is not too involved are good activities for Ruxton.

From an investment perspective, Broken Coast is a subsidiary of Aphria.   It’s hard to make an investment play for this quality of cannabis as Aphria is a big company.  WEEDMD and Supreme (7 Acres) Cannabis are more interesting direct play to quality cannabis.
